    @Honyuk96: I love your work (Art).

    I tried, but never had the patience for married wings.

    Also, I feel kind of sad when I think of the life of a Atlantic Salmon fly. Destined to spend its life sitting on display in a shadow box on someones wall. Never ever to be fished for fear of losing it on a log on the river bottom...

    Keep up the great work. Your flies are beautiful.

    My offer still stands if you want to borrow this book for some inspiration.

    Amazing. I tie a ton of flies but mine all look reeeeaaaal buggy! I wish I had the patience to tie beautifully.

    It isn't really hard but does take a lot of patience. I have done a few but you are right they are a display frame. Just to look at not for a slimy old fish to mess up.

    Beautiful work honyuk96, truly a work of art.
    I have a friend who has been tying and fishing those types of flies for several years. A few years ago he was tying them and donating to fund raisers, I bought (out bid) a couple of them for outrages prices and took them home to sit in a enclosed box. Later he stopped by and saw them in the boxes and asked why. A couple of weeks later he handed me 4 new flies in a small cardboard box labeled "for fishing only". Needless to say, I have fished them, (and caught fish) but still keep them in a plastic box on display.;)
